Creative hashtags for Instagram | Hello! Hooray!
Creative hashtags for Instagram

I’ve recently got back in to Instagramming after a long break from it, and I had forgotten how much I enjoy sharing photos and browsing for photos I like. It’s really easy to edit a photo and post it in a few minutes with Little One, and I’m enjoying engaging with the community there. I got thinking about the hashtags I use (very early one morning!) and I thought it would be good to share the ones I use, look for new ones and see what you guys are using to share your photos. So I’ve put together my (non-exhaustive) list of creative hashtags for Instagram!

Hello! Hooray! is now on YouTube!

I am so excited (and a little bit nervous) about the fact that I have just launched my very own YouTube channel! In keeping with my other social media channels it is called Hello Hooray blog (although my website title has exclamation marks, I can’t use them on Facebook so I have to be consistent!).

Blogtacular 2015: the photowalk | Hello! Hooray!
Blogtacular 2015: the photowalk
Early last Saturday morning, I joined the other lucky people who were picked to go on the Blogtacular photowalk with West Elm. We met at the London Eye at 7am (!!) and were split into two groups – one with Xanthe Berkeley and the group I was with was led by Samee Lapham. We explored the Southbank which is such a vibrant, colourful area with a LOT of photo opportunities. It was brilliant to meet some lovely new people before the main event, and we got to know each other well along the way!  Read More

Blogtacular 2015

It has taken me a few days to even begin to process all of the things I heard, saw and learnt at Blogtacular last weekend (which is why I’m only just getting around to posting this!). When I bought my early-bird ticket for Blogtacular 2015, I knew that this was an even not to be missed. Little did I know just how much I would learn about blogging or how many wonderful people I would meet when I signed up! It was simply amazing. I took so many photos and have so much to tell you, but I’m going to try to summarise it the best I can.
